Abstract

Myxoid solitary fibrous tumor (SFT) is very rare soft tissue neoplasm. It is microscopically composed of spindle cells which is individually separated by delicate band of collagen fibers. And this tumor cells are immunohisto-chemistrically highlighted by CD34. Myxoid SFT has indolent clinical course and a good prognosis, so it is important to make a diagnosis because of its morphological similarities to myxoid spindle cell neoplasms that have different prognoses and treatment. We report the case of a 20-year-old female with a myxoid SFT found in the left temporo-parietal scalp. This case report appears to be the first reported scalp occurrence of this rare tumor.
